What is Fruity Friday?
Thank you for supporting World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF UK) by taking part in Fruity Friday, our annual awareness and fundraising campaign, which this year took place on 17th May 2013.
Fruity Friday takes place during WCRF UK's annual Cancer Prevention Week, which this year was held between Monday 13 and Sunday 19 May 2013. Cancer Prevention Week aims to promote healthy lifestyle choices, including healthy eating, physical activity and maintaining a healthy weight, that can help prevent about a third of the most common cancers.
